Don't Do This Unless You Want SPAM, It's Just Downright Dumb!

February 16, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 43

The bane of all business owners is Spam. We can waste so much time filtering and dealing with it, even with all the great tools out there.

But some people seem to have more of a problem than others. Why?

How did they get your email address to start with?

Spam bots and email scrapers!

I see web masters place and display an email address on a web page. It's a short cut because -

  • Makes their job simpler.
  • In their zest to "knock out" websites.
  • Easy for the web visitor to contact you.

But guess what?

It costs YOU!

Sooner or later the spam bots will get it, then that email address is burned, only forever.

(Put your web developer in a headlock if they've done this to you)

What can you do about it? Nothing, it's burned. Get a new email account.

What's the better solution? A spam free contact page that has a code to protect it against spam bots, something that us humans have to fill out.

It's a better, smarter and more professional way to go anyway. Clients love it, most contact forms have a drop down selection of reasons for contacting you, this simplifies the enquiry process. Some have a cc option too which can be useful.

Anyway,l was just doing some reviews for prospects and it never seems to amaze me, here we are in 2011 and this bad web practice still goes on.

Seriously, kneecap your web master, they're costing you time and money! Does my head in!

Peter helps professionals and businesses rapidly grow their business online by using the power of websites and blogging to reach more people, lead generation systems to convert web visitors into paying clients and for some, leveraging the power of social media marketing.

80% of our work is rebuilds so that tells you something. At Smarter Websites we help business websites soar up the Google charts, get more clients and actually make money so if you're not building the client base you think you could or should then we should talk. Go to Smarter Websites Now!
